On Thursday, April 3, 55 teams representing Toronto's corporate community were pitted against each other in a battle of wits at Battle of the Brains® 2003, the 10th anniversary edition of Invest in Kids' signature black-tie fundraiser.
Chaired by Debbie and Don Morrison, the event was presented by TD Securities for the third year and was a CBC Production. Quizmaster Alex Trebek of Jeopardy! fame returned for the fourth year running to host the trivia challenge of more than 500 players. Each of the previous nine winning companies were represented along with new recruits who participated in the friendly competition for the first time.
